From Portsmouth to Normandy – We Remember the Legacy of Liberation

05 June, 2024

As we follow the D-Day veterans from Portsmouth to Normandy, remember those who gave their lives to liberate Europe on D-Day, 80 years ago. 'Risking their lives to liberate people they had never met'.

D-Day: 80th Anniversary On the 6th of June we will honour the 80th anniversary of the Normandy Landings. On this date in 1944, Allied forces launched a massive amphibious assault on the beaches of Normandy, France, to liberate Western Europe from Nazi occupation.

Involving 156,000 troops, the D-Day landings marked a pivotal moment in World War II.

To mark this significant milestone, The UK Charity - PTSD Resolution is launching a new short film to raise awareness of the mental health issues faced by Veterans - and the support available to them. The charity provides free and effective therapy for the mental welfare of Forces' Veterans, Reservists and their families, and the newly launched film
